exploring my block

I've been living here eastside  in Lincoln Heights for 4 months. It's about time I take my camera with me on my explorations. 

I found a hole in a fence a block away from me. Here's what I found on the other side of it.

Here's to that one time I got a Working Holiday Visa to live/work in Ireland for 1 year then decided to spend 3 months traveling outside of the US instead.

Ojai with ICE CREAM

I just spent 24 hours with the band ICE CREAM in Ojai, CA. They were in town for the weekend to finish mixing their debut album, and decided to camp it out for a couple nights. Perfect timing, since I had to be in Ojai to for a summer rock camp I will be working at this week anyway, so I headed up a day early to hang out with the dudes. They mixed a few more songs, we saw the world's biggest skateboard, ate some burgers, and ended the night back at the campground with  a cute fireside jam session. Super cute. They're such great musicians it's hard not to swoon while they're deep in their acoustic thoughts. 

I think they're done mixing now, and it's all so very exciting!! I'm in love with the music they make, and I have a really good feeling this record is going to do great things for them. It's sounding so good, and it's quite a unique experience being part of a process like this. No other band has invited me into their album-making world before, so being able to be around for ICE CREAM's fits into such a bigger picture with how I want to be connecting, collaborating and interacting with artists. :)

Anyway. Here are some of the photos I snapped:: 

BAND Promo: ICE CREAM

ICE CREAM is from San Francisco. They were in town this weekend and I decided they could use some  new photos for  their internet things, so on Friday night we shot for a few minutes before the house party they were playing at. 'twas swell!

::Kid Cadaver rehearsal::

Sat in on a Kid Cadaver rehearsal for the first time last week in the garage in the valley. Snapped some pics. Heard some new jams. 'twas fun.

The Road to SXSW with Smoke Season

Last week I got in a van with the Smoke Season duo, Gabby and Jason, their drummer Chris, and their tour manager/friend Matt, to drive the 22 hours from LA to Austin for our first SXSW. Along the way we stopped multiple times to catch the desert vibes on camera, and the cacti did not fail us.

Here are some of my favorite shots from that day:
